Research Grants & Projects

  • Interdisciplinary research on prioritization of restoration sites and technical development of restoration methods
    Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology:Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(基盤研究(A))
    Date (from‐to) : 2007 -2010 
    We developed methodology of ecosystem evaluations regarding forests, rivers and agricultural lands. Also, we examined connectivity and historical changes of habitat mosaics and roles of biological legacies such as large wood in recovering processes of vegetation and stream biota. Fishes, invertebrates, plants, amphibians, mussels and mammals were selected as indicator species to evaluate restoration project based upon the results of monitoring and experiment. As for the economical and social aspects, restoration projects were analyzed, and social acceptance and future dimension were discussed.
